steve overmyer is here with your cbs 2 wfan sports update, and it's not the best night for the mets, but a great season for them. >> so far it's been a fantastic second half of the season and you can't hinge the season on every single night, but we start with what may be the hottest team in baseball. since the trading deadline, the mets have gone from the second worse offensive team to the tops in the league. you combine it with the pitching staff, and you can see why they have not lost in more than a week. they took on the rays, and granderson, continuing to mash out a leadoff spot, and his sixth leadoff home run of the season, tieing him with jose reyes. he's batting .310 since the all star break, and he ties it at 4 with this, his 19th of the season, but noah syndergaard continues to struggle on the field.
he let up 5 runs including the go-ahead run in the 4th inning, and hopefully it's more of an aberration instead of a sign of what is to come. the mets go hitless with 8 strikeouts, and the winning streak ends at 7, and the mets lead in the division but still at 1.5 games. the american league version of the mets is probably the blue jays. they help their team out a ton at the trading deadline, and they have won 7 in a row. today they ran into a buzzsaw. his name was david price, and 4- 1, 2.61 e.r.a. now just 4 run in the last 4 games, and nova had his good stuff. something happened to him in the 6th, and he loaded the bases and then threw his last curve ball of the game.
justin smoke, grand slam. 4-0. since the addition of tulowitzki. he has made up 5 over the yankees. the blue jays within 2.5 of the division league. the jets are holding their scrimmage tonight, and smith comes back to get the touchdowns for brandon marshall one against revis. did you see what odell beckham jr. did in camp today? he is so smooth, he makes the sensational look simple. we have not seen or heard from jason pierre-paul. it's a good thing the communication is more frequent. coach coughlin even got to chat with him by phone. >> do i know anything more than before? no he is looking forward to coming and is anxious to be here, but he's not coming until
play. time. i'm not going to speculate. i was glad to hear his voice. he sounded good, and he sounded back here. >> that is good to hear. tonight we saw the largest profootball hall of fame induction in nearly 50 years, and among those inducted, jerome betis. tom brown, and the late junior sao, and his daughter gave the acceptance speech for her late father and didn't leave a dry high. finally from the meadowlands, the first leg of the triple crown here, and pinkman is far and away the best 3-year-old colt here, but mission brief was trying to pull off the upset against the boys and try to be the first philly to win it in 19 years, making the move from the outside, but she is just short. pinkman holds on to win it paying back 560 with the win there.
